I stayed first at Crescent Lodge in March this year, with a view to 'check it out' for the impending visit of my friends from Arizona USA. I was immediately impressed by the warmth and friendliness of the owners, Penny and Paul, and the pristine cleanliness of my room.
Although I had already made my decision that I had found what I was looking for,the Full English Breakfast that was served to me, and the excellent range of alternatives and accompanyments clinched it beyond doubt.
My friends and I arrived at Crescent Lodge on Sunday 19th April a little bit early, right in the middle of a family Christening celebration, to the delight of my my friends we were treated as guests of the family and joined in the party.
We had already been allocated our rooms, but when the son of my friends arrived "out of the blue" Penny and Paul transferred them to their magnificent, opulent, space age apartment "The Old Joiners Shop" which adjoins Crescent Lodge, so that the family could be together. My friends were overwhelmed: by the gesture, by the food, by the accomodation,by Ripon, by Yorkshire, by England,and of course by Penny and Paul and Crescent Lodge too.
It was a great experience for me.
